For my second edition of “Housework Tuesdays” I would like to highlight an amazing product that MG from Magnolias and Mimosas introduced me to last week.
Motivated Moms offers a weekly chore list calendar that outlines specific chores you should accomplish each day to keep your housework under control. It cycles through items such as vacuuming, dusting, cleaning bathroom toilet, cleaning bathtub & shower, cleaning mirrors, etc on a weekly basis. It also rotates in those random chores such as baseboards, dusting the ceiling fan, cleaning light fixtures, etc throughout the month. Here is a sample of what another user had to say as well what the chore list loosk like Sample Calendar.
I purchased the calendar at MG’s suggestion last week and I have fallen in love! I purchased the half size calendar and I printed it off and placed it in my planner. I have my weekly schedule and weekly household chores laid right out for me! I tend to put all cleaning off until Saturday and I spend my entire Saturday morning cleaning the house. Since I have been following the MM Calendar, I do a few chores each evening/morning and my house stays at a level of constant clean. It’s truly genius! Plus I don’t feel like such a failure at housework throughout the week. I tell myself, “All I have to do is the few items on the list and I’m done!” If you are a control freak/list maker like I am, you will love the feeling of accomplishment you get from checking off your little boxes each day!
I am sure that I will not follow the list 100% all the time, but it gives me a guideline to follow for keeping my home in order and it makes me feel like I have some sense of control over the housework situation which honestly makes keeping the house clean a much more pleasant experience!
What about you? How do you cope with the never ending amount of laundry/dusting/dishes?? Any good tips to make housework a little less irritating??
